Europe’s Top Bureaucrats Intensify Calls for European Superstate

  • Campaign for European Superstate. Top-level European Union bureaucrats are intensifying their calls for the creation of a “United States of Europe” as a way to silence critics and to stop the progress of a growing number of Eurosceptics. The European Commission VP, Viviane Reding, is one of many EU bureaucrats that have a grand vision for the future of Europe and are calling for the adoption of a European superstate to be placed before voters in the upcoming Spring elections: “We need to build a United States of Europe with the Commission as government and two chambers – the European Parliament and a “Senate” of Member States.” The adoption of an EU superstate would transfer sovereignty from national governments and parliaments to a centralized EU bureaucracy in Brussels. She added: “This debate is moving into the decisive phase now. In a little more than four months’ time, citizens across Europe will be able to choose the Europe they want to live in… There is a lot at stake. The outcome of these elections will shape Europe for the years to come. That is why voting at these elections is crucial. This will be our best weapon against the Eurosceptics: to explain to our citizens that their vote really matters.”
  • Euroscepticism is Growing. As the European economy continues to stagnate, hostility towards the EU political and monetary experiment has reached unprecedented levels across continental Europe. No doubt, the bureaucrats are worried as anti-EU parties are leading the polls in France, the Netherlands and Greece. Nigel Farage, a leading British Eurosceptic and the head of Ukip, has already responded: “For people in power in Brussels that is the only choice on offer, no reform just a United States of Europe. On 22 May the British people must ask themselves if they want this and vote accordingly… I am sure people will say no to this centralist fanaticism.”
